My Secret Announcement....


Yesterday, I left you with a bit of a teaser, I know.
Are you ready for my exciting announcement?

I'm really hoping that 
you'll love it as much as me.

{But enough with the waffle, Sarah.
On with the post....}

There's a shop in the Cotswolds, 
that has been one of my all-time favourites for years. 


They sell a fantastic range of paints - 
Farrow and Ball, Sanderson, Dulux, Earthborn, Little Greene 
- as well a the most beautiful architectural ironmongery. 
Their advice is truly second-to-none, 
and they even have a basket of toys for little ones to play 
with while you're browsing.


They've asked me to design and author a blog for them. 
I began the Relics of Witney blog about a month ago 
and it's now ready for your personal viewing pleasure...


It's going to be a heady mix of top notch advice and tutorials 
on using the very best paints and products, 
as well as how to make your home and garden look gorgeous 
and the sharing of fabulous information.


So far, posts have been about how to choose 
 and the Relics team have been sharing 


Would you like a peek?

I'd be so honoured 
if you'd consider following me there.

Jen of Country Weekend said...

Congratulations--I will head over for a look. Last year we painted our house grey with blue undertones, and I badly wanted to paint the door pink. The painter, my husband and sons looked at me like I was mad, so I settled for a deep red. One day I am going to go paint it pink--I'm not sure they would even notice.

Shelly @ Life on the Wild Side said...

Hooray for you, Sarah! That is fantastic! You are the perfect person to do this. I'll be following.

I just popped over. It's great, Sarah. You are really multi-talented, for sure!
I especially loved the doors. Mines a bright red and I've been thinking of changing it. I was so surprised the difference light played on some of the paint choices
It was very informative!

Sarah, congratulations on this! I am so excited for you! :) I just went over to check it out, and think it is so lovely! I tried to follow you there, but there must be something I am doing wrong.

Hugs,
Jenni
